Despite playing 90 minutes in Manchester United’s recent 4-0 Barclays Premier League victory over Newcastle, 25-year-old striker Javier Hernández is still not pleased with the way the 2013-2014 campaign has gone under first-year boss David Moyes. Due to his continued unrest at Old Trafford and the club’s desire to reload during the upcoming summer transfer window, the Mexican international has reportedly been informed that team higher-ups are ready to sell him during the approaching period. Appearing in 31 total competitions this season with the defending Premier League champions, the former Liga MX star has not received the time he feels he deservs and now it certainly appears that his days with the English giants are numbered.

While Premier League clubs including Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham have all been mentioned in the past as possible landing spots -- along with Inter Milan and Valencia -- many feel a strong fit exists between Chicharito and Spanish Primera Division affiliate Atletico Madrid. Due to the fact that the La Liga giants are expected to lose scorer Diego Costa this summer, the Spanish side could elect to ink Hernández to a significant contract. Despite these rumors however, Chicharito’s agent said recently that right now his star talent is focused on finishing out the current season with Manchester United, who will not repeat as BPL champs.

“I have no news of Inter and Manchester United have not let me know anything about a possible offer,” agent Eduardo Hernandez said recently when asked about the reported interest in his client. “The same goes for the other teams that have been linked to my client. To date there is nothing concrete. At the moment we have not planned any meetings with the Red Devils. Currently, we are not able to say it because we should talk with United, the club with whom Javier still has several years of the contract.”

With the international talent no longer in the plans of David Moyes along with his drop behind Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck in United’s rotation, it certainly does appear that an exit from Old Trafford would suit Hernandez. Thanks to his international success with Mexico and solid play at Manchester United when given the chance, Chicharito shouldn’t have to wait too long to find a new home if in fact he is sold during the summer window.
